Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) December 22, 2011
The Atlanta Center for Adult ADHD, located in Roswell, Georgia, announces the launch of its innovative Advance Testing Program, designed to allow patients the opportunity to complete both Quotient ADHD testing and comprehensive validated questionnaires prior to the first clinical visit. The Quotient® ADHD System accurately measures motion and analyzes shifts in attention state to give a clear picture of the core symptom areas of ADHD. The software calculates results based on 19 or more parameters that combine to give greater than 90% accuracy in identifying core symptom areas of ADHD.
The test, conducted at Northwest Behavioral Medicine in Alpharetta, a prestigious multispecialty psychiatry practice with a nationally known research center, takes approximately 20 minutes for adolescents and adults. Tests are submitted electronically to the BioBehavioral Diagnostics server and available within minutes to clinicians at the Atlanta Center. In addition to helping to clarify diagnosis, the Quotient test is utilized to assess progress on medication. As part of the Advance Testing Program, a set of comprehensive, validated questionnaires is now available for download from our web site, http://www.Atlanta-ADHD.com. This allows completion of the lengthy, written testing portion prior to the first clinical visit as well.
Approximately 60% of children with ADHD continue to have symptoms as adults. Untreated ADHD can have devastating consequences on productivity and quality of life issues. Opened last year, the Atlanta Center for Adult ADHD is metro Atlanta’s first medical and behavioral treatment program dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
